Re: Car Show Season

You've done a "few" car shows with your XR. Rough estimate or best guess: how many years & car shows & average number of people ask you what mfg or mistakenly ID the mfg? Kind of lame when they can't read "XR4Ti", or how many can't figure out "Ti"? Thanks for showing the Merkur marque and posting yo...

Re: Scorpio heater core replacement

I know you're a glutton for punishment, so include a few other items for your frustration. 1] Vent motors at driver's foot. The plastic gears strip sometimes when the vents get stuck. Boss gears available and easy to instal on motors, but frustrating to align. I've never had to do it, but others hav...

Re: Scorpio heater core replacement

Congrats on the progress. :cheers

I'm facing a lawn mower that decided it doesn't want to start anymore and my 2000 Sable Wgn has a CEL from Evaporative emissions circuit fault. :(

I finished upgrading my wife's Mac today. Maybe I should quit while I'm ahead.

Re: Scorpio heater core replacement

I'm mystified why you're messing with the heat box and all the vents. Remove the 2 screws in top of heater core end cap and slide it out.

Re: Scorpio heater core replacement

Two screws to remove heater core are in the top edge [front & rear] of the plastic end cap w hose connectors]. I don't remember having to remove "vents" to change heater core. Most likely disconnecting the duct immediately above the core will make it easier. I've had very little success gluing plast...
